Thanks RHarv. I think this is first time I've heard from you in the User forum. There are a few guys who are heavyweight contributors. I've been a member only since the beginning of the year and have already found out about you, Mac and Matt Finley. But I never see them post any performances. I've heard you guys are all powerhouse musicians, so ... ?

In my case, don't believe everything you hear smirk

I have plenty of songs posted on the forum, dating back many years.
Go here -
http://www.pgmusic.com/user-showcase/?genre=jazz
CTRL+F and search for rharv on the Rock, Jazz or Realtracks tabs.

I ain't saying they are my best work, but it ain't hard to find. Neither is the work of others you mention.

Mac & Matt have earned my respect, FWIW. I am not in Mac or Matt's class as far as performance. Doesn't matter which weapon; piano, trumpet, guitar .. I'd be gettin' schooled.

I like the song (and Pat's anagram!) Uber cool tune and stellar playing. Ditto on the brass.

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music.
